summer fun printable

If you're new to my blog (and even if you're not), I'd love for you to check out my facebook page!

I know that I'm a bit early posting a summer project here, you know, since spring just started and all. BUT, this was one of my most viewed projects last year, and people are starting to check it out again. I added a few new activities to the list this year. Last years list had a date on it and wasn't very printer friendly. This year I wanted to make one that would be easy to print at home. I printed my list on cardstock, and mounted it (using mod podge) on a piece of foam board. Of course, this would be just as easy to pop in a picture frame and use a white erase marker to check off your activities. 
(I downloaded the digital tape from the Southern Stumble blog.)

We had so much fun checking off the activities last year. Many of them we did all summer long, like going to feed the ducks.
 We took the kids to the beach- which they loved!
 Made a clothesline tent. This will be the perfect spot for a lunchtime picnic this year.
 BUT, hands down, their favorite wanted.to.do.every.day.activity was the tin foil river. We bent the sides up on the foil, put the hose at the top of the foil and floated bottle caps down it. Save your bottle caps!

Don't these pictures make you want it to be summer RIGHT now?! I can't wait. So, what are you waiting for? Click here to download your list, and get ready for a summer of FUN!

If you like this list, leave me a comment and let me know what you're most looking forward to this summer.
